I'm doing some local autocrossing, working my way up. Trying to piece together some of your parts, they are by no means cheap especially after seeing the price diff between pedders and pfadt bushings.

Some of our bushings are made with raw poly that cost $450 a gallon!. To meet our durability standards, this is what we have to use. Buying the bushings in a system, and there are lots of systems, offers significant savings for sure.

If you need some assistance in coming up with a suspension game plan, I would be pleased to assist you.

I am not 100% sure of all that you have done to your Camaro, but I was under the impression some of what you have done would not be allowed in T2? For suspension, I thought T2 allowed shock upgrades, coil upgrades as long as heights are not changed, and no bushings of any kind. There is a written petition to SCCA on allowing the front radius rod bushings to allow some upgrades due to the fluid filled concerns they offer.

We sponsored a successful T2 GTO for years. There are some disasterous bushings on this ride, specifically the front fluid filled radius rod bushings. Chris would do some practice laps to seat in a new set of pads, and the front OE radius rod bushings would be dripping by the time he went back to the pits. Chris took 1st place in his class 2 years in a row running Pedders on his GTO.

Not so much a swipe, as an honest evaluation of his driving... I saw the 100+ mph 4-wheel drift over a blind hill video

I will be out in my personal car if all goes correctly (not a camaro), purchasing a new home seems to have shifted our focus on home modifications

Some say don't lift till you see God. Chris has a different twist on that. If you lift you -- will see God.

Instincts of a cat and tenacity of a bull dog LOL

You can't say he doesn't give 110%
